Designed for the beginning health care student, Introduction to Medical Terminology, Second Edition, simplifies the process of learning hundreds of complex medical terms. The See and Say pronunciation system makes pronouncing unfamiliar terms easy. Because word parts are integral to learning medical terminology, mastery of these "building blocks" is emphasized in every chapter. Organized by body system, chapters begin with an overview of the structures and functions of that system so you can relate these to the specialties, pathology, diagnostic, and treatment procedures that follow. A workbook offers word part and comprehensive medical terminology reviews, flashcards, and learning exercises in a variety of formats that require written answers.


  • Accompanying StudyWARETM CD-ROM offers additional practice, assessment and feedback through interactive quizzes and fun activities that correlate with each chapter in the book.
  • Sounds-Like Pronunciation System - The "sounds like" proven method of pronunciation simplifies saying the terms correctly.
  • Word Parts Emphasized –Word parts are highlighted in color and defined whenever a term made up of word parts is introduced, with the definition following in parentheses.
  • Study Break – A brief and amusing pause before students go on to review important information in the chapter.
  • Career Opportunities stimulate consideration of career ideas related to chapter content.
  • Human Touch: Critical Thinking Exercise Scenarios that involve patients and pathology apply chapter material to the real world.
  • Additional tools included to support instructors wanting to teach a simplified syllabus.
